A new reality


Adapting

 

A few days ago was my brother’s funeral

He was handsome, funny and profane

It’s been difficult to focus on books, so kindly bear with me

I’ll be back in 2018 to spend time with you…

 

 

You showed me a lot of things,
I learned a lot I didn’t know
But you forgot to teach me one last thing
How to let you go

  13. I’m so sorry to read your sad news. It would be difficult to bear at any time, but so much harder in this season, I suspect, with its relentless push for “good cheer.” The four-line poem you included is so very true. Hugs, V
